Christmas bells are ring­ing,
Ringing, ring­ing,
Happy child­ren sing­ing,
Christ is born.
In the man­ger low­ly
Lay the Christ child holy,
Angels sing­ing, shep­herds bring­ing,
Love and praise.

While the star shone o’er Him,
O’er Him, o’er Him,
Wise men knelt be­fore Him
Where He lay.
Forth they brought their trea­sure,
Wealth be­yond our mea­sure,
With hearts glow­ing, all be­stow­ing,
Hail Him king!

Gold and myrrh they brought Him,
Brought Him, brought Him,
Bearing gifts they sought Him,
Far they came.
Now, while bells are ring­ing,
We, too, pre­sents bring­ing,
Bow be­fore Him, low adore Him,
Crown Him king.
